I am new to spearfishing and have not yet had a shot at anything other than a target. I would like to get used to spearing before venturing out into the sea.

I was planning to maybe just shoot a grunter or cob to get the hang of it. Is spearing in lagoons legal?

I'm also from PTA and part of a training group. We train most weekends at the De Jong Diving Pool. Some weekends we do dept diving at Miricle Waters. Come and join us. I won't be there this coming weekend, but you just ask for Fernando.

Hi

Regulation 23(g) says that you may not:

"(g) engage in fishing, collecting or disturbing any fish with a speargun in a tidal river or tidal lagoon."

In the 1990s, one of the Natal team members were busted shooting Grunter in the Keurbooms, the guilty parties were banned by SAUU, for two years from competative spearfishing , if I remember correctly, in addition to the fine.
